If we do not experience from within a body, then where oh where do we feel-think-do from?

The Model of Insight

It occurred to me whilst reading Joseph Campbell’s Pathway to Bliss, that if we have no models of nameless now, then, well, we have no models. Whatever conclusions we draw from this are our own doctrine(s) making themselves visible. For some the need to...
